Weekly Fishing Report

           For the week of: June 16, 2019

            Flows below Cheesman Reservoir: 257 CFS and 270 CFS at Trumbull

 

Denver Water increased flows last week and the fishing has been good.  We are recommending nymphing with 2 or 3 bugs and dry dropper/dry double dropper rigs.  There have been strong hatches of BWO’s and we expect to see more caddis hatches in the weeks to follow.  Worms, Leaches and Golden Stones have been great lead flies. Baetis and caddis nymphs and midges trailing. Cloudy afternoons have produced the best surface action. Afternoons the water is getting slightly stained from the small creeks. 

 

          Help us keep the river and river banks clean of trash, pack out any trash you see!!!
